The Detachment is a novel about political intrigue, where assassins are the tools of the trade. This book was 99 cents. An amazing bargain.
John Rain is trying to live an unobtrusive peaceful life in Tokyo, and retire from his life as a government assassin. But he's being watched, and that means his old life is coming to find him. Someone is about to make him and offer he can't refuse and drag him into a race to save lives and maybe the US constitution. I will be reading more John Rain novels. Very highly recommended.
